There's not a lot of women lining up for a fight against one of the greatest athletes in MMA, but Lina Lansberg did.

Lansberg is set to make her UFC debut against Cris "Cyborg" Justino this Saturday in Brazil. She may be relatively unknown to the casual MMA fan, but she isn't someone you should sleep on.

In case you aren't familiar with her fighting style, check out this free fight.

In this bout, Lansberg faced Emma Delaney at CWFC 66 - Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 66, in March, 2014. She was able to finish her opponent in the third round using punches and elbows.

Saturday, she will face a seasoned MMA professional who hasn't lost a bout in 10 years, but Lansberg hopes to make history by being the first woman to defeat Cyborg in the Octagon.
